Changes in Accounting Policies’, prior period items refers to those income or expenses,
which arise in the current period as a result of errors or omissions in the preparation of
financial statements of one or more prior periods. The term does not include other
adjustments necessitated by circumstances, which though related to prior periods, are
determined in the current period e.g., arrears payable to workers in current period as a
result of revision of wages with retrospective effect.

(c) In the case of dissolution of a partnership firm due to insolvency, Garner vs Murray rule
is applicable at the time of any partner becoming insolvent. It requires -

in their capital ratio after making adjustments for past accumulated reserves, profits
or losses, drawings, interest on drawings/capitals, remuneration to partners etc., to
the date of dissolution but before making adjustment for profit or loss on realization

(e) There are many accounting softwares available in the market. To choose the accounting
software appropriate to the need of the organization is a difficult task, some of the criteria
for selection could be the following:
1. Fulfillment of business requirements: Some packages have few functionalities
more than the others. The purchaser may try to match his requirement with the
available solutions.
2. Completeness of reports: Some packages might provide extra reports or the
reports match the requirements more than the others.
3. Ease of Use: Some packages could be very detailed and cumbersome compare to
the others.
4. Cost: The budgetary constraints could be an important deciding factor. A
package having more features cannot be opted because of the prohibitive costs.

vendor with good reputation and track records will always be preferred.
